The Regional Science Centre, Rajkot, published on ArchDaily, epitomizes the seamless fusion of indigenous influences and architectural ingenuity.
Seamlessly blending local influences with architectural innovation, and inspired by the annual religious fair, the design symbolizes life’s continuum. Design elements like a central courtyard crowned by a tensile fabric canopy, and radial walls reaching upwards, together create a vibrant space. Themed courts, galleries, and mezzanine spaces house interactive exhibits, fostering science exploration, thus enriching education and culture.
Overcoming terrain challenges, the design prioritizes sustainability with vertical fins, canopies, and cross ventilation, aligning with the city’s ethos through rainwater harvesting and recycled materials. The Science Centre invites diverse groups to engage in science exploration, providing a versatile and eco-conscious public facility.
